Bad news spreads - the cost of an infectious disease


A client’s office was closed for one week owing to an outbreak of a contagious virus. This resulted in a substantial loss of income.


How we helped

Fortunately for our client, rhg had arranged Business Interruption cover to include an extension that provided indemnity against losses resulting from an outbreak of a notifiable infectious disease. The policy responded accordingly and covered the business for their lost income.   Legionnaires’ Disease is a common cause of such potential claims and is often uninsured.
